Scandinavian Hearts Tablecloth

I've finished my Scandinavian Hearts Tablecloth top.  This was a lot of fun to make, and I really enjoyed doing the redwork.  I think this one would be a lot of fun to hand quilt.


I was going to make this red and green but decided to use mainly red so it could be used at Christmas and right on through February for Valentine's Day.

Each corner has a different redwork heart.

I had to redo one of the hearts because I was so excited to start this project that I didn't put it on point.  Not sure what I'll end up doing with that...either a cushion or the center of another project.

I hope you're all having a good day and doing a bit of stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

This is really lovely; and I like the idea of using it for two purposes: Christmas and Valentine's Day. I think the center star is superb. Nice Finish Julierose

It's a beautiful color combination. Wonderful for christmas and for valentine's day, great idea, thank you so much. With one "wrong" heart I've made a cushion.
Have a nice day and take care

Oh, Luann your top looks great. You should send a photo to wenche at Northern Quilts and show it to her. I know she would like that. Good luck with the quilting.

This is so pretty! I love the red and cream colors and love that you'll use it for two holidays.

Do you label your quilts? You could use the extra block for a label on the back.

Cheri said...

What a sweet quilt. Your embroidery is so nice. Love that each little heart is different.

retstickan said...

A beautiful quilt, I love the pattern and colour combo.

Sherry said...

What a wonderful top! The "boo boo" block could be used in a companion piece -- like a tea cozy (if you are a tea pot person); or perhaps in a pillow?

Thank you for the eye candy today.

Lori said...

You are creating such pretties, LuAnn. I love all of your red projects, this is so sweet with the embroidered hearts and strings. Your use of the striped border is clever, it gives off a continued pieced feel~
Great finish!
